AC kilowatt-hour meter
The ITRON LCD meter is the standard utility-grade meter seen on most homes. These reconditioned, certified, utility-grade meters are an economical means for keeping track of how much energy you are selling back to the utility grid. The meter works for 120 VAC or 120/240 VAC systems with a maximum current of less than 200 A. The 028-03042, five-terminal meter (Form 12S) is used for tracking the power fed back to the grid from an OutBack 120 VAC grid-tie system. Often used for Green Tag sales.
